Susan Tatum Woodhouse (born August 7, 1958, Suffolk, Virginia), known by her pseudonym Liz Carlyle, is an American writer of romance novels since 1999, primarily of historical romances.


Personal life[edit]

Susan Tatum Woodhouse was born in 1958 in Suffolk, Virginia.[1] She attended college on a Scripps Howard writing scholarship and majored in journalism. She is married to Edward Carlyle, and has two stepchildren.[1]


She spent much of her career working in human resources and labor relations in the chemical and automotive industries. She didn't begin writing until December 1996, when she was between jobs. She finished the novel within two months and attempted to find a publisher for it. Although that work did not sell, Pocket Books was interested in seeing more of her work. In 1998 they bought two novels from her, publishing the first, My False Heart, in 1999.[2] In 2003, she contributed a novella to the anthology Big Guns, marking her first foray into contemporary romance.[2]

Carlyle has been nominated for Romantic Times Reviewers' Choice Awards five times, winning in 1999 for My False Heart as well as having been nominated for a Romantic Times Career Achievement Award,[3] and won a Romance Writers of America RITA Award in 2006 for Best Long Historical Romance (The Devil to Pay).[4] Several of her books have become USA Today bestsellers.[5]
